1 Corinthians Part 2Lesson #3Chapter 9:19-27
Stop! Drop! And roll!
Stop
what you're doing,
drop
to your knees, and
roll 
everything to the Lord. Ask Him to help you focus your mind on His Word and put aside all distractions. Now read chapter 9 before beginning this lesson.
1.In chapter 9 Paul illustrates how he gives up certain freedoms for the sake of his weaker brothersand sisters in Christ. Review verses 1-18 and explain how Paul governs his liberties in Christ for the sake of others.2.What motivates Paul to the point that he says no to freedoms or rights accorded to him? How doeshe put that into practice in his life? See verse 19.3.What does Paul mean in verse 19 when he says he's
 free from all 
? See 1 Cor. 8:8-9; 9:1; Gal. 5:1,13; Col. 2:16-23; 1 Pet. 2:16.4.Based on what we've read so far in 1 Corinthians chapters 8 and 9 explain how Paul made himself a
 slave to all 
.5.What does Paul mean in verse 20 when he states,
 And to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law, as under the Law, though not being myself under the Law
when he was still a Jew? See Acts 16:3; 17:2; 18:18; 21:20-26; Rom. 10:4; 2 Cor. 5:17; Gal.2:20.

6.What did Paul mean in verse 21 when he said that he sought to win those to Christ who were
without law
by being
without law.
See 1 Cor. 10:27; Gal. 3:2; 5:1.7.Explain what Paul means when he says that though he was free from the Law of God (the Law oMoses) he was still subject to God's commands under the law of Christ. See Rom. 3:8-10; 8:12-13;Gal. 5:13-25; 6:2.8.How does understanding our identity as slaves of Jesus Christ influence how we live and how werespond to other believers? How is that a different mindset than the “Christian libertinism”

somany adhere to today?9.Warren Wiersbe writes, “It is unfortunate that the phrase “all things to all men” (1 Cor. 9:22) has been used and abused by the world and made to mean what Paul did not intend for it to mean. Paulwas not a chameleon who changed his message and methods with each new situation. Nor wasPaul a compromiser who adjusted his message to please his audience. He was an ambassador, not a politician! ...In his personal life, Paul so lived that he did not offend either the Jews or the Gentiles.He did not parade his liberty before the Jews, nor did he impose the Law on the Gentiles. Was Paul behaving in an inconsistent manner? Of course not. He simply adapted his approach to differentgroups.”

What are some ways you have or have not followed Paul's example of reining in or usingyour freedoms wisely in order to win people to Jesus Christ and strengthen them in the faith?10.Paul's motivation for everything he does and everything he explains in this chapter is summed upin verse 23 (and also the end of verse 22). What is his driving passion?

 A
libertine
is someone who acts without moral restraint and casts off moral codes of conduct. So a
Christian libertine
would be someone who pushes their freedoms to the point of sinning. They consider grace as a free pass for engaging in sinful or questionable behavior,and which would cause others to stumble.

11.What does it mean to be a
 fellow partaker 
of the gospel? See 2 Cor. 8:23; Phil. 4:3; Col. 1:5-6; 1Thess. 2:13; Titus 1:1-3; 1 Pet. 1:23, 25.12.Paul now takes his comments to a wider level while still addressing how to minister to believersfrom varied backgrounds. Paul comments in verses 24-27 seem to take on a larger scope andencompass all areas of the Christian life. What do we know about those who run in a race fromverse 24?13.From verse 24, what is a runner like during a race he is intent on winning? See also verse 26.a.What is a runner like during a race that he has no intention of winning? b.What does Paul want us to understand about that example when it comes to the Christianlife?14.What distinguishes those who run to win in the Christian life?a.Are those qualities evident in your life? b.What changes, if any, would you like to introduce to your life so you can run to win?c.What obstacles do you face in doing so?
